When asked about Royce White's status with the team, Kevin McHale replied, "I don't know. Royce has kind of been away from us."

White hasn't played for the team yet this season. "He hasn't been around," McHale added. "I haven't seen him." We hope White is able to prepare himself for a career in the NBA, but we're not expecting to see him suit up in the near future.

Jimmy Butler (elbow) is expected to miss three-to-four weeks with a sprain, but he will not need surgery, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The Bulls are officially calling it a Grade 2/3 ligament (ulnar) strain and a small bone impaction injury to the left elbow. Per beat writer KC Johnson, Butler will be evaluated on a weekly basis, and it's possible he'll return in under three weeks, but we're definitely looking at an extended absence for Jimmy Buckets. If he misses three weeks, there would be 11 regular-season games left. Without Butler, Tony Snell should move into the starting lineup and is a must-add in every format where he's available. Without Butler and Derrick Rose (knee), the Bulls are going to be slogging through the offensive end in the near future.

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Kevin Martin (illness) are both questionable to play on Monday against the Clippers.

Pekovic did not participate in shootaround, and he'll warmup before the game to see if he can give it a go. It doesn't sound promising even if he plays, so Gorgui Dieng should remain very ready, and he'd be the most obvious candidate to benefit without the big man. As for Martin, his illness is out of nowhere, so if he doesn't play, Andrew Wiggins will be an even greater point of emphasis with Gary Neal possibly joining the starting lineup.
Mar 2 - 1:30 PM

Jose Calderon (achilles) will be out for at least two weeks.

He'll be reevaluated at that point. This means Calderon will miss at least the next 14 days, and it sounds like there is a good chance he'll miss additional time beyond that. Without the veteran in the lineup, expect Langston Galloway and Shane Larkin to see the bulk of minutes at point guard as Derek Fisher gets creative with his lineups. Of the two, Galloway is the one to target in standard leagues, while Larkin has to show us something real to earn any additional consideration.
Mar 2 - 1:20 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring), Al Horford (rest), DeMarre Carroll (rest) and Pero Antic (knee) all returned to practice on Monday.

All four guys sat out the previous game on Saturday, but it sounds like they're all good to go going forward and each is expected to be available on Tuesday for Atlanta's next game against Houston.

Sixers waive C JaVale McGee.

The Sixers made the move prior to midnight on March 1, meaning McGee will be eligible to join a playoff-bound team if one actually signs him to their active roster. We'll see if that happens.

Tyson Chandler (hip) and Chandler Parsons (ankle) are both out against the Pelicans.

The Mavericks could once again go small with Dirk Nowitzki at center while starting J.J. Barea alongside both Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis in the backcourt, but it's also conceivable the team goes with a more traditional look and starts Bernard James at center. As for Parsons, Richard Jefferson should once again draw the start, and he's averaging 10.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.0 triples over eight games (29 minutes in that role).
Mar 2 - 12:10 PM

Kyle Lowry (personal) will not play on Monday against the Sixers.

Lowry said "a bunch of things" are bothering him, and that would help to explain at least some of Lowry's recent struggles. The point guard also revealed the organization wants to take the long-term approach when considering the postseason, and it sounds like Lowry could miss additional time as well. The Raptors play Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. For however long Lowry sits, expect Greivis Vasquez to see a big bump in time with more minutes for Lou Williams.
Mar 2 - 12:06 PM

Goran Dragic (back) is still being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Suns.

Dragic really wants to play, but he's clearly hurting even though he did report some improvement. He did not participate in shootaround, an indication that The Dragon could be headed for a dreaded game-time call. If he's unable to suit up, Mario Chalmers would start and see all of the minutes he can handle with Shabazz Napier as his backup.
Mar 2 - 11:33 AM

Brandon Knight (hip) is expected to start against the Heat on Monday.

Knight left Saturday's game with a left hip pointer, but it doesn't sound serious if he's already ready to be back in the starting lineup. Gerald Green will head back to the end of the bench.
Mar 2 - 11:01 AM

Taj Gibson (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for at least another week.

Not good. Gibson's ankle sprain is clearly serious, and Gibson has a history of playing through ankle injuries, so we know it must be bothering the big man. The Bulls play four times this week, so if Gibson misses all of those contests, Nikola Mirotic will continue to see big minutes off the bench with Chicago leaning a little harder on both Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah.
Mar 2 - 9:31 AM

Derrick Rose (knee) said that he would return this season.

Rose has already started his rehab and all reports have been tremendously positive since his outpatient surgery. While we're likely to get daily Rose updates for however long he's sidelined, it's important to remember that the earliest he'll return is at the back end of March. That doesn't leave a lot of time for him to contribute to fantasy owners looking to win their postseason matchups.
